A little vignette of some french soldiers warming themselves by a fire on the epic march across the alps with Napoleon in 1800. I wanted to make a little campfire scene with the lightbrick and I havn't posted any mocs here for a while of my custom Napoleonic soldiers. This moc shows an officer and some men finding a little shelter amongst the rugged mountains. Im planning to make a series of mocs based on the artist Keith Roccos paintings from Napoleon's Italian campaigns. Cheers everyone

Well done on your custom troops  :bonaparte: . I like the campfire ( made epic with the light brick) and the positioning of the men. By the way, where did you get those bayonets from?

Thanks Aalak. All the decals have been updated on my troops to the new designs. About 100 men so far. Will be posting pics soon of larger mocs with them.

The use of a light brick is really a good choice and adds a particular atmosphere to this scene.

The soldiers' wearings are well chosen too, very good creation you've done here  :thumbup:
